Since 1959, LaSalle College has positioned itself in the educational field as a key player in innovation, entrepreneurship and openness to the world. In 2019, let’s celebrate our College’s 60th anniversary!

Trailblazer from the beginning

From an East Montreal family, Jean-Paul Morin founded LaSalle College in 1959.

This young entrepreneur set the mission to provide the population with career opportunities through teaching that was adapted to market needs.

The school first taught secretarial work, the famous Speedwriting method, along with Nancy Taylor’s charm and finishing course.

On the lookout for the latest pedagogical trends, Mr. Morin went from innovation to success, continually adding more programs through the years.

Looking to the future

Today, LaSalle College offers over 60 programs, placing innovation, entrepreneurship and openness to the world at the core of its educational plan.


The College, now located in the heart of Montreal’s effervescent downtown, continues to innovate.

Online training pioneer in Quebec, LaSalle College was also the first in the city to integrate virtual reality into its courses.

Likewise, it stands out for cutting-edge collaborative classrooms, and a clothing technology laboratory called Techno-Espace.


True to its founder’s values, LaSalle College places entrepreneurship at the core of its mission.

Each of its programs helps students develop their entrepreneurial spirit. Numerous activities, clubs and talks are designed to lead students to reach their full potential and brilliantly overcome the challenges of today’s world.

Global citizens

Step by step, the largest private bilingual college in North America built an international reputation to match the scale of its ambitions.

Today, the school’s population includes almost 40% international students. This unique, multicultural setting allows all students to broaden their horizons and learn new ways of thinking, while developing into citizens of the world.

LaSalle College is behind the LCI Education network. Currently located on 5 continents, LCI Education now has 23 higher education campuses that educate more than 17,000 students from around the world each year.


Since its modest beginnings in 1959, LaSalle College has continually positioned itself at the forefront of education, training the generation that will shape tomorrow’s world.

In 2019, let’s celebrate our 60 years of innovation, entrepreneurship and openness to the world. Happy birthday to LaSalle College!
